Gamma Real Estate has acquired, through a foreclosure auction for $98 million, the development site at 428-432 East 58th Street, located in the Sutton Place section of Midtown East. Gamma paid $86 million for the property and another $12 million for air rights, The Real Deal reported. Bauhouse Group assembled the site in 2015, with a $130 million acquisition loan from Gamma, and planned to develop a 900-foot-tall condominium tower at the site.
